Species text
In an unpublished status review there are only twelve post-1960 records known. A recent revision of this species-group showed that most records of L. pallidiventris refer to L. stylata Papp and there are few records of L. pallidiventris. Larval biology is unknown; other members of this genus have been reared from a range of situations including leaf litter, soil, dead wood, bird nests and moss. Threats include clearance of woodland and drainage of associated wetlands for agriculture or intensive forestry. Management should maintain habitat diversity at sites, including marshy areas, open rides and clearings. References
